my Indonesia today!!

I put heart to work as PR of indigenous peoples. I go to forest meet indigenous peoples from Aceh to Papua. They share the same stories.. Share the same pain, they hope to protect their own land, how they Fight for their rights over land, territories and resources, including customary forests. 

When you read their stories while you sip a coffee in the fancy coffee store, maybe it just stays on your mind one or two days while they fight for their rights every day!! 

Take your time to Visit their village, hear their stories how warm and kind their heart, how simple their motif only to get a simple life instead of luxurious life. Same like us they fight for Their future not to lose their land. They do not want to be slaves in the future if their ancestral land is grabbed. It is better for them to eat grass than being the slaves 

They are rich but they are also poor in their own land

Long Distance Relationship a.k.a LDR

Long Distance Relationship is the keyword that I entered in google when I received news of my husband get a scholarship. I will undergo LDR for 365 days with a 7 hour time difference between Jakarta and the UK. Appeared many articles that tend to tell the anxiety of the women . One day a co -worker asked me what my LDR tips with husband .

to be frankly this is our first time LDR, during the 9 -year courtship maybe once in the week we did not meet . To answer the last question of my co-workers is a Mental Preparation , Stop Drama and hallucinating and Believe
Preparation I mean is that the mental preparation and must set your mind that this will happen no matter you like or not . Prepare this period with the communications do’s and don’ts what you and your partner agree on during the LDR . One of the biggest why you and your partner can fit because your smell fit. The Smell is not because fragrant. This is another key to preparation is keep 2-3 shirts are worn and this is the most effective key to repel feeling nostalgic because her scent still lingering on the shirt .
Stop Drama and stop hallucinating . Why the article LDR talk on perspektif of women because Women is a drama queen who likes to hurt her own hallucinations . Please don’t too aggressive and suspect her/his of infidelity. So Ladies , just relax . It's not the end of the world , stop doing drama and use your energy to an activity . Activities such as Watching Movie , sports , plus the ability such a  sewing , embroidery , english , gardening , cook . Take the plus side you 've got “Me Time” a lot more now

Believe . Yup it sounds cliche but maybe this is the last formula we face the LDR for mutual trust then all will be well - fine. During the period there may be a future LDR “Galau” a.k.a uneasy time and it's only natural we enjoy it with a reasonable period of confusion without melodramatic .

Hopefully this article can help all the ladies in their LDR

KEMBALIKAN HUTAN KEMENYAN KAMI




“Kalau PT Toba Pulp Lestari menebang kayu alam, perasaan kami seperti menebang leherku inilah, karena daun kayu itu adalah rambutku itulah perasaan ku. Kalau hancur tanah Hutan Kemenyan itu seperti yang menghancurkan dagingku itulah yang kami rasa. Air yang tidak bisa kami pakai krn terkena limbah seperti darah yang dikotori TPL. Gimanalah kalau manusia hidup kalau dia tidak punya kepala, tidak punya daging, tidak punya darah”
 
 
Ibu Rusmedia Lumbanggaol wanita 57 tahun yang memiliki 12 orang anak menyampaikan keluh kesah kepada Dirjen Bina Usaha Kehutanan (BUK) Kementerian Kehutanan; Ir. Bambang Hendroyono, MM
pada pertemuan mediasi antara masyarakat adat Pandumaan Sipituhuta dengan PT Toba Pulp Lestari (TPL).
 
Kemenyan bagi banyak orang merupakan simbol mistis yang digunakan untuk suatu upacara spiritual. Namun bagi masyarakat Pandumaan Sipituhuta merupakan kepala, daging dan darah mereka dalam melanjutkan keberlangsungan anak cucu mereka.
 
Kaum pria Pandumaan dan Sipituhuta berangkat bekerja setiap hari senin ke hutan kemenyan untuk mengolah pohon kemenyan. Proses untuk mendapatkan kemenyan tidak semudah dari yang kita bayangkan.  Penyadapan kemenyan tidak perlu wadah, getah di biarkan keluar dari batang pohon, meleleh di kulit pohon. Pada cukilan pertama, batang pohon akan menghasilkan getah berwarna putih yang baru bisa di ambil sekitar tiga bulan kemudian. Getah itu menempel di kulit pohon, sehingga untuk memanen petani harus mencongkel kulit batang kemenyan. Getah putih di sebut sidukabi atau mata zam - zam ini bernilai paling tinggi. Bekas cukilan itu akan menghasilkan tetesan getah kedua yang di sebut jalur atau jurur, yang bisa di panen dua tiga bulan setelah memanen mata zam - zam. Setelah itu muncul getah ketiga yang disebut tahir, harganya jauh lebih murah dari pada harga mata. Jika mata berwarna putih, warna tahir atau jujur semakin menghitam. Begitulah para kaum pria dari dua desa ini bekerja tinggal dihutan sampai dengan hari jumat malam dan kembali ke desa hari sabtu dan minggu untuk kemudian menjual kemenyan yang mereka dapat kepada penadah. Pohon kemenyan bukan pohon monogami, pohon kemenyan tidak dapat hidup dan menghasilkan tanpa pohon alami dari hutan. Pohon akan mati dan kering jika pohon lain ditebang.
 
Getah harum yang bernama kemenyan, yang dalam bahasa Batak di sebut hamijon merupakan sumber ekonomi bagi masyarakat Pandumaan Sipituhuta. Kemenyan yang menyejahterakan masyarakat Tapanuli dan getah harum itu ikut pula membesarkan namanya. 
 
seorang Ibu Rusmedia Lumbanggaol berjuang bersama 9 orang perwakilan masyarakat Pandumaan Sipituhuta ke Jakarta mengandalkan saweran Rp.10.000/Kepala Keluarga dari 700 KK Pandumaan Sipituhuta untuk membiayai tiket pesawat demi menyampaikan keluh kesahnya kepada    Dirjen Bina Usaha Kehutanan (BUK) Kementerian Kehutanan; Ir. Bambang Hendroyono, MM pada pertemuan mediasi antara masyarakat adat Pandumaan Sipituhuta dengan PT Toba Pulp Lestari (TPL).
 
Sejak tahun 2009, masyarakat adat Pandumaan-Sipituhuta telah terlibat konflik dengan PT Toba Pulp Lestari karena perusahaan tersebut menebang pohon alam termasuk pohon kemenyan di hutan adat Pandumaan Siputuhata.  Kemudian PT Toba Pulp Lestari juga menanam pohon kayu putih di kawasan yang hutannya sudah dibabat.
 
Ibu yang memiliki 12 anak tersebut mengatakan Tombak/Hutan Kemenyan Pandumaan Sipituhuta sudah kami miliki dan dikelola secara adat dan turun menurun dari nenek moyang kami.  “Keinginan kami bukan untuk kekayaan demi memperjuangkan perutnya kami dan sekolah anak agar mereka tidak dikirim pulang dari sekolah hanya karena tidak bayar sekolah”. 
 
Lanjut si Ibu bercerita, Keinginan kami hanya jangan TPL menebang kemenyan kami. Sumber kehidupan kami dari kemenyan adapun ladang juga rusak karena sungai yang ada yang jadi sumber air terdapat limbah yang dikirim dari porsea ke sungai kami. Kalau kami minum kurap semua kaki kami. 
 
“Harapan kami memperjuangkan tanah adat hanya untuk melanjutkan hidup, hidup sederhana saja  bukan hidup bermewah – mewah. Dan perjuangan kami ini untuk hari depan agar tidak hilang tanah kami itu. Kami tidak ingin jadi budak nantinya kalau hak tanah adat kami diambil. Lebih baik kami makan rumput  asal jangan jadi budak TPL.  Dulu saya terus menangis melihat nasib kami, tapi saya semangat sekarang memperjuangkan tanah / hutan adat kami. Kami tidak mau untung atau uang dari TPL, kami mau mengusahakan sendiri tanah kami, dari keringat kami” ujar si Ibu

Live in Drama


I just wonder why women always get label as a drama queen. women less effort to be such a drama with all issues they have. sometimes im asking why, while i know the answer. yes the answer is drama.

women can not stop doing drama in their own life. drama being single and independent women, drama being working mom, drama being married, drama being person in silent, drama in anything and nothing. 

this is the reason why women like drama film than action :) because we are the queen of drama in our life.
